Funeral costs for Martin Estanislao

Im Michelle, and I am the second oldest daughter of Martin Estanislao. Martin Estanislao was a longtime resident of Hemet CA and he worked for Stater Bros for many years. He was a wonderful father & grandfather. He had a heart of gold, an amazing personality, and a wonderful sense of humor, always cracking jokes and making people laugh. Martin was well known and loved by many. Unfortunately, last year he was diagnosed with Cirrhosis of the Liver, and about a month ago his health took a turn for the worst. Martin was rushed to the hospital with Esophageal Varices. He had lost over two times the volume of blood in his body, and was placed on life support in the ICU. About two weeks later, he was removed from the vent and breathing on his own. He was a MIRACLE. Sadly, a few days later we received the terrible news that his kidneys were now shutting down at a very rapid pace. We were told that "within the week, (at most), his lungs will fill up with fluid, he will not be able to breathe,  his heart will stop, and he will die." He hung on and appeared to be doing okay...for a few days, then he got worse very quickly. Sadly, today, Martin passed away at 7am. Although we get some relief knowing that he is no longer suffering, no longer in constant pain, we are now left with the burden of funeral expenses, and as we all know, it can be quite costly, even doing just the basics. If any of you can help with donations, (any amount helps), or even just with sharing our story, it will be appreciated beyond words. Thank you in advance, and God bless!
